Tommy Dorsey film clip in stereo!

Hi all,

Just finished a project I've wanted to do for years. I took a clip of TD playing an amazing arrangement of "Fascinatin' Rhythm" from the film "Girl Crazy" (1943) and replaced the audio with the stereo track from the CD (the film was of course released in mono).

I've put a RealVideo version of it up on the web - take a look:

If you have broadband, it will stream immediately. If you have dial-up, you'll need to download the whole clip first - should take about 20 minutes, but worth it.

Put on your headphones if you're at work and crank the volume up!


P.S. No, that's not Mickey Rooney playing the piano, it's Arthur Schutt. But MR does a great job of mimicry.
